The Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka, the only track to feature a figure-of-eight layout and the scene of many, many historic moments in Formula 1 – Senna clinched all 3 of his world titles here for starters… and as tracks go, Suzuka is a challenge – and a good one at that. It’s fast, there’s plenty of overtaking places and with many of the corners, drivers are rewarded for being right on the limit… and punished if they go too far – great stuff!
Here’s the lowdown for what’s on when – it’s only live on Sky this weekend, but being as it’s at an unsociable hour, the BBC’s highlights programmes are at a very attractive lunchtime viewing slot. Perfect.
Whether it’s Live on Sky or BBC highlights for you this weekend, keep it on Badger GP folks, here to further your enjoyment of Formula 1.
